Excellent presentation of the food and pretty tasty dishes all around. Portions left us a bit hungry--not what you'd expect for $20 entrees. They also short changed us on the wine. For 9-12 bucks a glass, could you fill it at least half way please?...More

I tried a special consisting of Cavatappi, grilled Chicken and a Cream Pesto sauce. My wife had a Pizza and my Son tried the Ravioli. All three dishes were impressive!
